Two tall, rectangular intersecting planes, one black and one white, create the appearance of a tall, minimal structure. Vertical lines of black and white add to the structure, which at its base projects slightly into a rough square shape that seems to delineate a kind of ground or base. The space around the structure is ochre.

At the top, five yellow stripes hang from a line extending from the top half circle. At the bottom, the entire structure balances atop three sides to a square. In the upper right corner is a cone shape outlined in small black dots.
